We decided to meet up for lunch there last week. This is a photo of CK waiting for his date. Unfortunately we turned up instead, very late.
The shop is within the perimeters of the tourism waterfront Golden Triangle area. It is a stone's throw away from all the major hotels & backpackers' inns. Small pebbles also can reach. When the wind blows, you're there already.
This shop claims to be the 'first family' in BBQ.
And when you look closely, it has a very interesting signboard.
My first thought was that its a clever little advertising ploy to attract kids.
Look Ma! Got Donald Duck. I want to eat Donald Duck BBQ!
...!!!!!... Wait a minute. That didn't sound right.
But anyway, we were there for the BBQ ribs which it was famous for.
See how succulent they are!
Not Porky Pig I hope!
The shop also sells Simmered Soups. See Yang Chai soup, which has body heat cooling properties is one of the main dish.
So so lah. Can pass the minimum standard. Ok for a first try if you've never had it before.
NEE: Overall the shop scored 8.5/10 as compared with other BBQ places in Kuching.
Food 54/60. All the meat is good. Nice and succulent. Even the roast pork is crispy albeit a little oily. Soup is nice but Greg says so so and drinks so so.
Environment 11/15. Love the very traditional feel of the place but due to our enthusiasm as bloggers and wanting to take fabulous pictures, we picked to sit outside and thus ate dust together with our food. Got very very bad nose itch after lunch.
Service 13/15. Very good. Fast delivery.
Value for money 7/10. RM 10 per person is not exactly cheap for Kuching standard. We did not ask for the individual price but with all the meat and soups and rice with drinks, we spent RM21. Not so bad for a rather complete lunch.
